Over 100 years of learning


The school is currently closed, including the school office. The campus is closed for the remainder of the school year. Information on how instruction and learning will take place starting 3/30 can be found on the new tab above, "Student Learning during COVID-19".


Please pay attention to local news outlets as health and safety directives from the State of Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) and Governor Ige are continually changing as our local situation develops.


HIDOE employees will be working remotely. Please be patient with us as we try to work out how to best service the needs of our school community during these challenging and uncertain times. We appreciate the efforts by parents and families to support the needs of our students.

Ma`ema`e, clean and pure in the Hawaiian language, is situated in beautiful, historic Nu`uanu Valley. Founded in the late 1800's, Ma`ema`e has grown from a simple three-building facility to its present design with seven buildings that accommodate nearly 700 students from kindergarten through the fifth grade.


Residents from all facets of the community support the school in many ways. The annual Family Fun Night and the Ma`ema`e School Community Council, are examples of people in the community coming together to create an environment that supports learning and growing for all.
